I say we should make a stand this summer and declare adult playdates a thing. Mom-ing is hard work and I think we should make some time to chill out with our friends and do whatever we want for a few hours. Let’s be honest, we really just want to sit still for a little while and not have to get anyone milk or step on Legos. So I say grab your best gals, have a girl’s night in and unwind. Don’t let hosting stress you out. Girl’s night food doesn’t have to be complicated. I’m sharing an almost all no-cook menu with you plus a super easy flank steak appetizer recipe. The idea of playdates takes on a whole new life when you look at them this way, doesn’t it?
My boys are about 2 1/2 years apart in age. At times they get along famously. And others they act like, well, brothers. But there are two things they can agree on. They LOVE soda (which they don’t get often). And Netflix (which they watch all the time). Recently they’ve become interested in my world of cocktails. With all the special tools and specialty ingredients, they are always asking questions about drinks and wanting to use the strainer or jigger. I decided to create a non alcoholic sangria that is totally kid friendly as a special treat. And while there isn’t much soda in this recipe, it’s still enough to make the kids feel like it’s a special occasion.

Spring has sprung and the weather has started to warm up. And we get to celebrate our favorite mothers on Mother’s Day. There are many wonderful mother figures in my life and I am so grateful for the time I get to spend with them. But this year, one mom in particular is blowing my mind (and, quite frankly, making me feel a little inadequate). This Mother’s Day, my sister-in-law will be celebrating her first as a mom of 4 kids. Her family recently fostered two toddler boys and it instantly doubled her family. She has handled this (and ALL the stress that comes with it) with such grace and love. She is truly a role model and deserves a little extra praise. But I also want to encourage her to find time for herself. Read through for a delicious adult-friendly Buttered Cheerios™ recipe with Truffle Oil that she can easily make during their regular snack time!

You need three things for a good BBQ: good food, rad friends and (hopefully) warm weather. And while being invited to one is awesome, I love to host them even more! Today I’ve partnered with Hebrew National to share my favorite BBQ party ideas. There’s nothing I love more than a grilled hot dog and a stress-free menu that will let you enjoy your own party.

I live in an area where the parks are abundant but your house and yard are tiny. I often want to invite people over but worry that my house will be too cramped (plus I’ll have to clean it…). Now that the weather is warming up, we really need to start taking advantage of these gorgeous public spaces. While you won’t have your full party arsenal available to you in a park, it is still really easy to put together great looking parties to go.
Please tell me I’m not the only one afraid of cooking fish. I really want to add fish to our dinner rotations but I kind of don’t want my house to stink up. Plus, the only times I’ve tried to cook it, I’ve managed to make an awful, mushy mess. Do you know what I’m NOT afraid of, though? Products that aspire to help you get a delicious dinner on the table, fast. In fact, I embrace them. I totally geek out over an entrée that I don’t have to fool with and lets me focus on quick, delicious side dish recipes. Because I kind of excel at those. I can’t wait to share this spring-inspired menu with you. And, yes, I cooked fish!
